    I believe I am one.

    Deffo a Mod, probably an Admin.

    Can I help?

    Arrow Re: Who are the admins?

    For my money, Robbie was the admin on this forum, has he really been replaced in that function? Take for example the requests to add or remove a sub-forum; no one here appears to genuinely be in a position to do so. Or if they are, they have been keeping quiet about it up to this point in time.
    Admin: Manage the technical details required for running the site. Responsibilities include: to promote and demote members to/from moderators, manage the rules, create sections and sub-sections, as well as perform any database operations, such as database backup, etc., make forum-wide announcements, change the appearance, etc. May also act in the capacity of a morderator.

    Moderator: Manage the day-to-day affairs of a forum or board. Have access to the posts and threads of all members for the purpose of moderating discussion, keep the forum clean, neutralizing spam and spambots, answer users' concerns and general questions, Common privileges include: ‘deleting, merging, moving, and splitting of posts and threads, locking, renaming, stickying of threads, banning, suspending, unsuspending, unbanning, warning the members, or adding, editing, removing the polls of threads.

    The most basic way to understand this is to see it as a hierarchy, or a three-tier pyramid. The base of the pyramid or hierarchy is the users. They are abundant. Some of these users will be chosen to become the moderators, or some people from the outside will brought in to moderate. These moderators become the second tier of the pyramid, where they have to watch over and control the users. The admins are the top of the pyramid. They either own the group, have made the group, or have been assigned as the admin of the group. They basically have all the power in the group and are the authority figure. The watch over and control the moderators and the users.


    Remember when this happened? Who sorted it out in the long run?

    I agree. The way I see it

    - we no longer have an admin - although Robbie is still around somewhere to fix things in an emergency
    - we have a slightly shadowy group of mods, exercising a slightly unclear mandate

    - but there is an active RR.COM twitter feed! (Robbie)


    It's time RR.COM got some tender loving care
    - get rid of the 10th anniversary banners, replace with something fresh
    - archive off the articles, wiki, blogs and gear sections and recognise what we are - a forum
    - rationalise the number of different forums we have
    - try and find a technical admin (volunteer anyone?)
    - write a behaviour policy
    - can we do anything clever with other sites - working with say rugbyreferees.net

    that sort of thing.

    On the motorbike forum I subscribe to (£1 a month) the Moderators have a banner under their forum name.

    I think there are a number of "Mods" but some are more active than others.

    Short answer: check out Robbie’s post, subject to minor changes, as it is 5 years old.
    But then you may recall that discussion, since you asked the same question back then..
